Hi Everyone, 

I'm looking for advice on behalf of a friend. They have an Autistic Child and are looking to apply for DLA. My experience with benefits focuses on mobility issues so I could do with some guidance and advice from parents or carers of an autistic child. 

A few questions I have:

- How have you made a form that focuses on physical disability to work for autism? 
- What information should be included?
- How best to explain the needs of an autistic child?
- Is there any information we may not think to include that could be really useful/important?

Thank you so much to anyone who responds. This family deserves the best support. 

I hope you're all having as good a day as possible!
